Standart Magazine Issue 13 is out now. Every issue of Standart magazine is beautifully designed and the content carefully curated in order to bring you into a one of a kind experience. It should be meaningful, enriching, and inspiring; Standart Magazine Issue 13 does just that.
Standart Magazine is a quarterly published print magazine from the Slovak Republic about specialty coffee culture, food and drinks and design. The goal has always been to offer an exceptional experience through meaningful content and solid design. The people behind the Standart Magazine has also founded the Standart Festival. Devoted to bringing together our favourite people, brands, baristas, and bartenders, Standart Festival serves as the signature event of Standart Magazine and is based on three fundaments: coffee, design, cocktails. While each of these segments has its own loyal and dedicated audience, we believe that people immersed in the specialty world share many interconnecting passions and interests. Providing a space where they might come together and explore these through different channels is precisely what we’re bringing about. So far, we have organised Standart Festival Bratislava and Standart Festival Prague. Each had attendance of over 1,000, great speakers, bars, and workshops.
We confront, from two directions and perspectives, the questions of how we can ensure the survival of our industry in the face of climate change and supply chain vulnerabilities, before zooming in on the challenges faced by one particular producing country—Nicaragua. And for something a little lighter, Michelle Johnson runs a tasting experiment that will challenge the way you think about, and describe, taste.
Focusing, as per usual, on the people that make the coffee world go round, we take a deep look at Blue Bottle and it’s founder, James Freeman, in a long-form rumination on quality, scale, and the run of time. Eddie Twitchett of Round Hill Roastery joins us for a chat about roasting, Talking Heads, and Twin Peaks, and we turn to an ethnomusicologist to explore the relationship between coffee, music, and meaning.
We all know aeroplane coffee is bad. But why is it so bad? Surprisingly, there are some good reasons why, but also some not so good ones. But the question of bad coffee might simply be a question of taste. Philosopher’s have battled with this questions for centuries—we take a look through the guise of coffee. Finally, we take you all the way to Sydney, Australia, for our city profile just in time for the World AeroPress Championship!
